The Sustainable Urban Economic Development (SUED) Programme, a £60 million programme supported by the British Government through the Department for International Development (DFID) began its information sessions with municipalities yesterday in Wote and Bomet.
These information sessions give counties a platform to ask clarifying questions on SUED’s Call for Proposals. This call for proposal seeks the 47 County Governments applications in proposing municipalities to benefit from improved economic planning and creation of strategic business environments.

Launched by British High Commissioner Nic Hailey earlier this month, the five-year programme aims to support up to 10 fast growing municipalities to develop sustainable urban economic plans and attract investment for critical infrastructure and value chain projects.
SUED is offering technical assistance support and seed financing to the successful municipalities who will receive urban economic planners, investment climate advisers, investment experts and capacity building specialists.
